# How do I do a Calculation with the power to

I am rebuilding an app I had built in Google Sheets to Bubble and have progressed nicely. I have been using the Expressions plugin but one formula is stumping me. In Sheets it is 2^(G4/3). G4 will be a dynamic filed from Bubble. The answer in Sheets if I replace G4 with 6 is 4, where in Buble it is 0. I tried replacing the formula with 2<<(6/3) I get the answer 8 instead of 4. How can I get it to give me the correct result?

I’ve figured it out. It should be 2**(6/3)

Glad I could help. Took me 3 hours to figure out the first time. At least I learnt
